Poster: female college runner
Subject: RE: She was once a runner
As mentioned earlier, the results throughout the season only loosely fit the author's descriptions, suggesting either only a coincidental similarity with BC or systematic fictionalization of the entire story. However, the pre-nats results are among the most convincing to link SWOAR to BC, in my opinion. As mentioned earlier, BC's 4th runner at their opener (Jelley) was their last runner at pre-nats. This pattern fits that of the author. BC placed 4th a pre-nats-- hardly a shabby finish, but disappointing for a team that entered the season hoping for a national title.

As a sidenote... I hope that if the author stumbles upon this thread and finds her identity exposed, she isn't discouraged from continuing her captivating story. I realize the messages from her experiences are conveyed equally well anonymously as they are when correctly attributed. Personally, my interest in investigating her identity (and the team's) is a compliment to the blog's powerful impact. I feel that validating its increasingly evident truth may make it even stronger.
